A new series of photos and video from the canary release on February 22 shows the colorful little birds perched on top of a small hilltop.
The canary released into the wild is the first member of its kind since the species was reintroduced in the United Kingdom.
The team of conservationists and bird watchers who have worked to restore the canaries habitat in the British Isles for decades say it is time for the first captive canaries in the wild to be released to the wild.
The images, which have been published online, show the birds perched high up on a small, rock-strewn hillside.
The first captive male canary is about one-quarter the size of the one who was released back in 2006.
The birds are currently being kept at a conservation centre in a field outside London, but their owners want to move them to a large farm outside of the city, according to the BBC.
A spokesman for the conservation centre told the BBC that the birds are “living the good life and it’s a fantastic time to be a canary.”
But a spokesman for conservation group the Wild Bird Trust said the canarians are still too small and are not suitable for outdoor living.
The Wild Bird trust says it has been working to save the birds for the last 40 years, and that their release is only the first step in saving the species.
“The UK government and the rest of the world have failed to make the species available for the public to see and enjoy in captivity,” said the spokesman.
“So, we will now use the images and videos to show the world just how precious the birds really are and to raise awareness and raise money for conservation.”
The first canary was released to a group of people in the village of Downton Abbey, England in 1967.
It was then released to other individuals in a large enclosure near Buckingham Palace in 1977.
It was also released to people in South Africa in 1992.
“They’re the most beautiful animals in the natural world and we’re trying to protect them for future generations,” said Wild Bird trustee Helen Moyle.
